Yuya Terraced Rice Fields
Genre : Natural Wonders
Area : Yuya & Heki AREA
The Yuya Terraced Rice Fields are nationally reknowned for their magical scenery on evenings when the sunset lights up Yuya Bay. The fishing lights of squid boats glisten in the twilight across the water's mirror-like surface.
"Terraced" rice fields are water-filled rice paddies constructed in graduated steps, or terraces, along a steep hillside.
Along the Mukatsuku Peninsula in Nagato, an enormous area of terraced rice fields covers an area of nearly 700 hectares.
